Middle East and Africa International Banking Convention 2016

The Asian Banker gathered the Middle East and Africa’s key decision makers for a dialogue on “Retail Banking Facing a Fintech Uprising” at the Middle East and Africa International Banking Convention 2016.

Our keynote speakers included:

  • Tayfun Küçük, chief technology officer, OdeaBank, Turkey
  • Gray Stern, chief commercial officer and co-founder, Landbay, UK

Summarising our discussion:

  • Mobile takes banking and computing to people hardly touched by technology before
  • Banks have to bring customers along at their own pace – customers set the pace of change
  • Fraud will move from conventional payment instruments to digital payments requiring better authentication and identification
  • Fintech will impact each market differently but most likely will be most visible in payments
  • Banks can choose two ends to the digital spectrum to take part
  • Remittance and P2P macro payments are some of the most effective ways in capturing the unbanked population

Held at The Ritz Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre, Dubai, United Arab Emirates on the 20th of April 2016.
